The nuns and community of Aloka Vihara are happy to organize the Berkeley Action to Feed the Hungry, an online event on Saturday October 3rd from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. We are coming together, with folks from all over the Bay Area, again this year to support Buddhist Global Relief!
This year, in addition to making an online donation, there will be two ways to participate in the Action:
1) Make a Mindful Movement Pledge
Pledge to do an activity in support of the Action to Feed the Hungry. The activity might be walking or cycling, for example. Just create a fundraising page to participate! Share your Mindful Movement Pledge, and encourage other folks to donate in support of your efforts.
2) Join our Buddhist Action to Feed the Hungry online gathering
On Saturday, October 3rd, from 1 to 3 p.m. Pacific Time, we will get together online to hear from our host temples: Berkeley Buddhist Monastery, Berkeley Buddhist Temple, and Berkeley Zen Center. We’ll also enjoy video of Mindful Movement activities, and hear from BGR Executive Director Kim Behan and from Venerable Bhikkhu Bodhi, the Founder and Chair of BGR. Zoom links will be available on the Berkeley Action page very soon. Please join us in support of this important and compassionate work!
